Batman Movie Sequels And New Comic Titles

So the third installment of the Batman reboot has finally gotten a name: The Dark Knight Rises.

Also, there are two new books due out in 2011.  "Batman, Inc.". Written by Grant Morrison (responsible for the amazing All-Star Superman) and "Batman: The Dark Knight".

Apparently, "Batman Inc" plans to have a more science fiction slant to it, while "Batman: The Dark Knight" will concentrate on Bruce Wayne dealing with a more down to earth type theme, concentrated in Gotham.

The latter of the two seems to be more to my liking.  David Finch has been drawing Batman for years, there's an example right up there...and damnit, he's awesome.  This time, he'll be drawing and writing the series.

I usually don't buy DC books, not for any reason really...I just don't.  I'm all about The Avengers and tend to keep track of their goings-ons.

I do pick up an occasional DC book if it strikes me.  I read Blackest Night, until it spiraled completely out of fucking control and every single DC book had the words "Blackest Night" above the title, then had "Brightest Day"...then "Mildly Overcast Evening", "Cold With a 70% Chance of Rain Wednesday", "Wind Gusts Up To 40mph This Weekend" etc. 

The highlight of Blackest Night was the three issue "Blackest Night: Tales Of The Corps".  There were some inspiring stories in there, the utmost standout being the story of Saint Walker.  Even though Saint Walker's color was Blue, which stood for the power of "Hope", his story of faith stuck with me (I'm not even that much a person of faith) and it really stood out among the others.

I digress...tomorrow, I'll give you reasons why you need to read at least one of these titles.  And those reasons aren't what you might think.

I Live In Massachusetts And I'm Sorry

Woah, I love MA!
I know we suck.  I know we make it worse for the rest of you.  I know that one of us almost became president.

I am sorry.  Seriously.  I am.  I apologize that we are so stupid here, that Barney Frank may very well keep his job as opposed to Sean Bielat.

I'm sorry we made you deal with the scumbag Ted Kennedy for so long, but that reign is over now, thankfully, and someone halfway decent is in the seat now.

We simply have a state full of mental defects that are just happy to remain ignorant of what they do and the affect they have on the rest of the country.

In an interesting article over at Slate.com they used actual math to find the most ego-maniacal Senator in the country.  The formula spit out the name John Kerry.

If you ever read the book "Unfit For Command" you may remember some amazing tales.  There were whispers in the book that his squad-mates joked about fragging him.  That he was a medal-hunter who was constantly going to his superiors and recommending himself for medals whenever he bumped his head, trip over a rock.

Simply put, John Kerry got the prestigious Purple Heart Medal when he injured himself throwing a flash-bang into a pile of rice.  Snopes and Wikipedia tell you all these things are untrue, but everywhere else says it's so.  I'm going to believe the people that were actually in-country with him before I believe Jimbo Wales and his liberal minions re-writing history over at Shitapedia.

None of what I read about "JFK" surprises me, I have lived here under his nose (lol) for years...and believe me: it's ten times as bad as you think it is.

Why Wikipedia Sucks And Is Hilarious

In the Wikipedia entry for social behavior called "Someone Else's Problem (SEP)" they list a few entries for its appearance in politics.

Here is the "Politics And Economics" entry in its entirety.
French president Nicolas Sarkozy warned the U.S. Congress that "The decline of the dollar cannot remain someone else's problem. If we are not careful, monetary disarray could morph into economic war. We would all be victims."

The New York Times said that when the Shah of Iran was exiled in 1979 he became "someone else's problem" from the point of view of President Carter's administration.

After Hurricane Katrina, Barack Obama said that "...when you turn on the TV or open the newspaper and hear about all the trouble in the world, there will be pundits and politicians who'll tell you that it's someone else's fault and someone else's problem to fix. ...there is another path you can take."
That last one is funnier than a crutch.  Because it's so funny, and Wikipedia is an open encyclopedia that "anyone can edit" (and then have their edits removed if those edits aren't liberal enough) I went ahead and added my own line:
Now that Obama is President, he has decided that all the troubles he know faces, are someone else's problems.  Mostly, everything is Bush's fault.
The over-under on how long my entry stays on the page, even though it's a pretty random page which likely doesn't get many hits, is as soon I finish this blog entry - that's why I included it for you.

Take a peek at the SEP entry and let me know when it disappears.

The Android Phone and the iPad

Fine, as pathetic as I feel...

I do not own an iPad, nor do I own an Android phone.  However, as soon as my plan is up I'll get a Droid.  Probably the htc Incredible.

Man, that's sad.

- Nickie Goomba -: Ronald Reagan has a few words to say about this election.

- Nickie Goomba -: Ronald Reagan has a few words to say about this election.

This speech gives me the chills.

Do you not hear the resolution in his voice? Are you able to not only hear the words, but listen to the message as well?

How has one group of people, liberals, been on the wrong side of every single major conflict this country has faced and still survive as a political party and a voting demographic?

This was what a President was. There were shadows of him in Bush, however slight they may have been, but they were there.

The ringer that stains the seat this great man once sat in is a shame and a disgrace to every single man and woman that has ever fought and sacrificed for anything. Be it the right to vote or be it living without an oppressive, pandering government that enslaves those less fortunate by keeping them tied into "free" social programs, thereby perpetuating a sense of entitlement in this country never before seen.

I watch that video and I am both inspired that there are still people in this country that will lay their life down for me and ashamed at those that feel they are deserving of what this country has to offer without putting an ounce of effort into it.

Activist Judge Acts Just In Time

6 days before some pretty important elections, a moonbat judge has struck out a section of Arizona law that makes one prove they're an American citizen before casting a vote.

So...all that work women and people of color did for the right to vote?  Sorry.  You were just in the wrong time.

Progressive Liberal Leader, Thinker Having Problems In NYC

Do you ever have a night where one too many Grey Gooses leaves you to wake up to that sinking feeling in your stomach that you might have done something inappropriate?  Like you told that parrot joke at the Christmas dinner table, or you tried to stand up, teetered a bit and knocked over a lamp...perhaps even something like in my case: you told your boss she had the biggest tits you've ever seen?

Leading liberal thinker, and one of the top political philosophers of The Left - who one time demanded face time with "President" Obama so that they can figure out a way to prosecute Bush & Cheney for being behind September 11, that the buildings came down in a controlled demolition and...lol...thinks Bush and company rehearsed their devious, murderous plots in order to have explanations for how the building collapsed.

So, this Liberal Leader, this pillar of truth and justice was at the Plaza hotel when a call was placed to the front desk.  The call was from a woman screaming, "Call the police!!  Call the police!!".  That woman was Denise Richards, Chuckie's ex-wife who was in the room right across the hall.

She was concerned because, while she was in the room sleeping with the children she bore with Charlie...he was in the other room and began a cocaine fueled rampage causing $7,000 worth of damage to the hotel room.  There was also a hooker in the room.

When police arrived on the scene, the hooker had locked herself in the bathroom (butt ass fucking naked of course, it's her right as a woman to go shirtless).  The police whisked her out of the room, terrified as other police tended to Sir Charles Sheen, Esquire.  He couldn't even button his own shirt, apparently.

What caused this outburst?  Other than the massive amounts of booze, cocaine and god knows what else these idiot junkies out in Hollywood do on a Monday night, you ask?  Charlie accused the hooker (remember, his kids are asleep in the room across the hall) of stealing his wallet and his cellie.  So, he decided to destroy the room.  I'm sure he has an htc Incredible, so I kinda understand the cellie part.

Other than the obvious reasons stated above, it's easy to understand why liberals love this guy.  He isn't afraid to stand up to the government and demand the truth, he is of the highest(hehe see what I did there?) moral character, is a stalwart family values defender, refuses to take no for an answer and he is beholden to no one...not even his kids.  He embodies everything liberals are.  What better role model is there to stand as a beacon light to the liberal message of sending America in the right direction - after all the damage Bush has done?

So, on a scale of 1 to 10, if facing your boss after telling her she has the biggest tits you've ever seen is an 8, what number is Charlie feeling today?

Teh Google Scares Me

Firstly, I don't really understand the intricate laws that surround privacy on the internet, international law, laws regarding uploaded content and who then "owns" it, i.e. the publisher/hoster: Youtube, Google etc or the uploader.

But I do think I know right from wrong.  I also know that where there's smoke, there's fire.  Google has been giving me the creeps for a while now.

I won't use their "browser", Chrome, as I feel it's nothing but piece of software for data mining purposes.  Of course it's going to be "fast", but it is my opinion that all it does is gather all your data and give it to Teh Googleheads - if that opinion is completely wrong, uninformed and incorrect than so be it.  I will stand corrected.

Seriously...look how scared I am of them.  I had to qualify everything right there.

Anyway,

Google seems to be the teflon website.  They come through anything and everything unscathed.  So established in our geeky nomenclature, the word "Google" has actually become a genericized trademark.  JFGI if you don't believe me.

So, some idiot kids uploaded a video of themselves beating on another kid that has Down's Syndrome.  Google hosted it and got sued.  The law currently states that ISPs can't be held responsible for stuff on the net, but content providers (Google, Yahoo, Youtube) can.  Obviously, Google has been trying to become an ISP for a long time. 

So Google fought this, and waxed poetically about dangerous it is to hold companies like Google responsible for publishing garbage like that.  The quote from Google that I found sickeningly hypocritical was the one made by  VP and Deputy General Counsel of Google, Matt Sucherman:
"...we are deeply troubled by this conviction for another equally important reason. It attacks the very principles of freedom on which the Internet is built."
Google + China?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Bueller?

Of course, once word got out that Google was getting paid to help governments censor the information their citizens were allowed to access, Google did a quick 180. 

But try looking for a straight answer on what Google is doing, still today, in China...and it's a long and arduous task.  As opposed to hard answers, there's just a lot of white noise...and it's obvious who owns the white noise machine.

The Chicago Way Has Saddened Me

All this talk of corruption in politics is starting scare me.  It's like they're going to seriously start offing each other...Rahm Emmanuel is the scariest dude I've ever seen.  And I've seen some scary dudes in my day.

Probably Him.
One day, I was driving out to Oregon with a friend and we picked up a middle-aged hitch-hiker in the middle of Kansas.  He got into the back seat, which is how all slasher movies start.

Anyway, he was making small talk, like all murderers do right before they strike. He then reached into his coat pocket and  pulled out a weapon and began wielding it around like a complete fucking loonbar.  So I jammed on the brakes and screamed "Hey what the FUCK are you doing??".  He was holding a small mechanical Phillips-head screwdriver and "claimed" he was fixing the overhead light in my friend's Subaru wagon.  Which he did...but that's not the point.

We dropped him off outside Boulder for his "Phish show", most likely code for "Voodoo Murderer Meeting".

My friend and I were lucky to have made it out alive, were it not for my decisive thinking.  He was obviously going to jam a real rambo knife into our heads but when I stopped the car in the middle of the highway, he quickly switched and grabbed the screwdriver.

The Weapon
I've supplied a picture of the horrible device for reference.  Those of you with weaker constitutions don't look to your left...just keep reading.  It isn't the actual weapon used in the altercation...but it's pretty damn near close.

Did I over-react?

It could be argued as such. But do you want to be threatened with a tiny screwdriver while attempting to operate a moving motor vehicle?

Didn't think so, tough guy.

So, that right there, my friend, is hard evidence that Rahm Emmanuel is the scariest dude in the world.  Because if I saw him, I would react in a way that is far more cautious of a manner than I did with those other two nefarious, criminal, rejects of a society succumbing to communism and jihadist apologists.

Get all that? 

It could very well protect you some day.  Consider me the Les Stroud of blogging - and you don't need to thank me.  My friend didn't at the time, and neither did that hitch-hiker.  So I understand...this type of thing can leave one speechless.  Much like the 20 miles of so of blank, awkward silence that followed while he fixed the light and until we pulled over because someone had to go to the bathroom.

Even Democrats Love, I Mean Hate, Obama!

There's a tear in your arugala.
So The Teleprompter In Chief is visiting Rhode Island today.  Rhode Island is actually a state who's corruption manages to rival that of California, Massachusetts and Illinois all while being smaller than nearly any given city in the aforementioned states.  Google "Buddy Cianci" - and when they way in which things are done around here starts to sink in, try not to let the sound of your jaw hitting your keyboard wake up the guy in the cubicle next to you.

There's a guy over there running for Governor.  This man, Frank Caprio (giggle), didn't get Obama's endorsement.  He's running against "R-turned-I" (see what I did there? Republican-turned-independant ...R,I ...RI ...Rhode Island!!!!1luckyslevin) Lincoln Chafee, straight GOP John Robitaille and Moderate Ken Block.

Well, Caprio received word that Obamadamadingdong wasn't going to be giving him his ringing endorsement.  This was Caprio's response:
"He can take his endorsement and really shove it.  I've never asked President Obama for his endorsement, and what's going on here is really Washington insider politics at its worst. We had one of the worst floods in the history of the United States a few months back, and President Obama didn't even do a flyover of Rhode Island like President Bush did when New Orleans had their problems.  He ignored us, and now he's coming to into Rhode Island and treating us like an ATM machine.  What I'm saying to President Obama very clearly is I'll wear it as a badge of honor and a badge of courage that he doesn't want to endorse me as a Democrat, because I am a different kind of Democrat."
Pretty good stuff, no?

All the fancy talk aside, who do you think Obama is really stumping for?

I, your handsome blauthor, will give you three guesses.

Even though you already know who else is in the race, you still get three guesses.  Ready?  Here they are:
  1. D-Barack Hussein Obama II
  2. D-Barack Hussein Obama II
  3. D-Barack Hussein Obama II
So what's your guess?  Who could he possibly be up there trying to help out?

How To Fall Behind In Everything?

Step 1: Have a baby.
Step b: Baby gets a cold.
Part 3: Wife gets said cold.
Section iiii: Get said cold yourself.
Climax: Entire house full of coughing, hacking, wheezing humans.

That's been my life for approximately a week and a half now.  All babies get sick, yes, but I have never felt so horribly terrified as I did when my son fell ill.  You know deep down it's just a cold or the flu...but all you do is think the worst.  It's terrifying.

Anyway, I'll just go ahead and mail it in and make today a small open thread, spread a few clicks around and get to work today...

Dropbox is a website that gives you 2GB of space in which to store files.  You can install it on any computer and and it will automatically update anything you drop into that directory on any computer you install it on.  If you use the link I made, you will get more than 2GB and I'll get a bonus amount of space as well.  It's awesome enough on it's own, but just get a friend to open an account and you get some more online storage.

Betsy's Page calls out the NAACP for what it is.

Basil would like you to know about college football.

What football is like in Texas.

Another Republican underdog doing good.

"To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical." - Thomas Jefferson.  Why do we allow this??
